Pierre Dal Corso Loves You

by Melissa Fox

You look at his work and think it’s that of a veteran photographer but talent is inherent in Pierre Dal Corso, who’s only been shooting professionally for “almost” two years.

Highly sought after for his unique vision and maybe even disturbing take on fashion, creativity and art, his work is striking. How many can pull the raw strength and soft inner beauty out of a subject in the same image?

You can find some of his most recent shoots in Zink magazines Holiday 2010 issue and in the most recent issue of 160 Grams, but here, the Paris (France) based photog shares 10 of his favourite images and a little bit about himself.
